Fernando Rafael's Favorite Movies
THREE WORDS... BEST. MOVIE. EVER. !! wonderful adaptation from Chuck Palahniuk's book, Fight Club is the journey of two men (or one?) toward self-destruction... Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter are magnificent in this movie... it's funny, it has its dose of drama and action, great photography and style, a nice soundtrack, the movie is FILLED with great quotes...anyway, David Fincher did a really good job...a classic!
I get such joy by watching this movie... This great Almodovar flick follows three generations of Spanish women: the grandma (Irene, played by Carmen Maura), her daughters (Raimunda, played masterfully by Oscar nominee Penélope Cruz and the underrated Lola Dueñas, who portrays Sole) and Paula, Raimunda's teenage daughter, who is also her sister (she was raped by her father; played by newcomer Yohana Cobo). These wonderful actresses, along with Blanca Portillo and Chus Lampreave (who makes a brief stint as Sole and Raimunda's senile aunt) shared the Best Actress award at Cannes Film Festival last year. Penelope Cruz got nominated for an Oscar with her performance as Raimunda (she should have won, i mean, her performance is so good, i went from absolutely hating her guts to LOVING her, also, i was a bit dissapointed that this masterpiece wasn't nominated for Best Foreign Film at the Oscars. Anyway, this dramedy is a must-see! SUPPORT HISPANIC CINEMA!
